    I never had youth clubs to go to.
    I never had EMA to go to college.

    I did have a mum and a dad that gave a damn though.

    These morons are simply criminals without a clue. Cameron has to go though.

    London Edugeekers: Are you OK?

    Does anyone know of any Edugeek members working in London: Do you know that they are OK?

    Edit: I used to work in Southwark. I must say I am glad that I do not still work there but I feel for those who do.

    I don't think they help or hinder. The people rioting would be rioting anyway.

    Agreed. This is the connected age. If absence of the news were a factor in preventing new outbreaks the battle would be all but lost. You can get news of events from many sources. I do not believe that this makes a case for censorship. I do believe that information about the events may be a factor in these events but not a significant contributory factor.
